All Smiles

Right now I have the biggest grin on my face.

I've been having a really tough time at work - and it looks like it's going to get worse before it gets better. This has had me in a chain-smoking state of stress for almost two weeks now.

But just now something good happened. Really good.

As you may or may not know, I'm a web designer. I have a little business on the side, though I've only been hired to do two websites before for pay. I don't really advertise - it's just a word-of-mouth, great-if-it-happens little thing I do for some extra cash. But I love it - I love doing it more than I can put into words and if I could do it full-time; well, nothing would make me happier. Just last week, as I was busy patching laptops, one of our inspectors said he was looking to hire me to do a website for their church. Just this week, a good friend (who got me my first paid site) said he knew a company that was hiring out for free-lance web designers b/c they were swamped. As I just sat back down at my cube, after making a trek to the snack machine for some Rold Gold Pretzels, a man I didn't know came up. He said he'd heard that I designed websites, and he and his wife have a prize horse that they show and breed and need a website for him. I'm so fucking stoked!!

Being hired to do two sites is great news! I'm also currently working on two other sites for friends and the man who is doing my therapy (b/c he sees me for free since I am a special/termed 'hopeless' case). Could this be the beginning of doing more web design - and possibly making enough of a name for myself to do it exclusively? Keep your fingers crossed for me! I wonder what color candle is good to light for webpages...lol.
